Data transfers can be done in two distinct ways, parallel (DDR2/3) and serial (PCIE/USB). As the speeds of data transfer increase, hardware engineers face newer design challenges. To keep up with the new speeds, designers must adhere to many well-established industry standards. But that is easier said than done… Until now.
With the latest release of HyperLynx, you don’t need a deep knowledge of SERDES protocols. The SERDES compliance wizard (3-min demo) checks multiple protocols for you and creates S-parameter models from the nets you include in simulation. It runs S-parameter metrics and protocol compliance checks for results that include eye density plots, optimized Tx and Rx settings, and other results in an interactive HTML spreadsheet format.
